Number of Fraxel Treatments?

How many treatments of Fraxel are recommended and what is the length of interval involved between treatments?

Doctor Answers 3

For fraxel Restore generally 5 treatments one month apart

Fraxel Restore is a fractionated laser therefore multiple treatments are necessary.

Depending on the patient skin type  and the diagnosis,  5 treatments are generally required to see the improvement.

Fraxel treatments

Fraxel Re:store usually is done for a series of 5 or 6 treatments. When treating melasma and superficial texture changes it can be done every two weeks or even less. Acne scars are treated with deeper treatment and these are done every three weeks or more.

Fraxel Laser, How Many Treatments are Required

Hi Sallyo,

Fraxel re:store treatments require 4 to 6 treatments separated by 2 to 4 weeks depending upon the patients skin type and what condition is being treated.

The more aggressive Fraxel re:pair rejuvenates the skin in one treatment, some patients request a second or third treatment separated by 4 to 6 months. Acne and surgical scar treatments may take 2 to 3 treatments.

Some patients choose a less powerful, less concentrated Fraxel re:pair treatment in which case up to 4 treatments separated by 2 months gives great results.

Good luck and be well.
